2011-04-11 Blossom Time (Day 228)

Spring appears to be gaining a foothold, and with it the flowers are starting to think about blooming.

This tree is just beside the road from my office to my regular lunchtime haunt (Asda). For the past few months it has been bare; devoid of leaves. Yet today I noticed the blossom enjoying the sun.

Of course, it was as windy as all get out… so what you can’t see in this picture is me carefully holding the branch to stop it from swaying while I tried to focus on it!
